Default Captain Slash (By NoLabel Games)

Inspired by the classic shoot them up genre, Captain Slash is a retro-styled shooter which provides you mighty weapons to reach the exit in each level by taking over the rebel horde in a 2D environment.

Think it has potential, very slow to begin with with the small asteroids (then bigger asteroids) then some slow ships coming towards you.

The menus which keep scrolling up from the bottom, then scrolling down are a bit of a pain.

Relative touch works well but one life ? I was very surprised when i died and then that was it, normally you get 3 or 5 lives etc

Does remind me of old skool games like Gradius (Nemesis) a bit, think it just needs to be a bit quicker, just seemed way too slow at the start.

Thanks for the feedback.
The beginning is quite slow, so that the player has time to get used to the controls.
The menus speed will be increased in the next release.
When your spaceship is destroyed you have to restart the level, but you lose nothing (you even keep all the collected credits). So, if a level is too hard, just collect credits to buy a new powerfull upgrade and come back with more firepower.

Maybe you could tweak it so that it happens only ONCE on the first playthrough like a tutorial.

This is indeed a possibility, thank you for the proposal.

Looks nice. May need to try this one. Name is a little misleading. I hear "slash" and I start thinking Fruit Ninja -- not a shmup.

At least you thought of a game.

It is obvious that the name was poorly chosen. Anyway, thanks for the feedback.
